You are right about many things but you are also wrong about many things. One thing you are wrong about is Ataturk. If you knew about the situation Turkey and its peoples were in post World War 1, you would know Ataturk saved Turkey. Do you know why Turkey is the most succesful Muslim state? It is because of Ataturk and his reforms. Close minded people like you can not understand what he did because you do not want to try to understand what he did. I highly suggest being more open and learning your history before you make such offensive and innacurate remarks about great men such as Mustafa Kemel Ataturk.
